Blurb (from Goodreads):A novel of one woman's obsession: a man who's as passionate as he is elusive - and as tempting as he is trouble...from the acclaimed bestselling author of Lost to You and When We Collide
Love turned him off . . .
Christopher Moore gave up on the idea of 'the one' years ago. Now, his life is an endless string of parties and an even longer string of girls. Enjoying the perks with none of the emotional mess, he's convinced everyone that he's satisfied - everyone but himself.
Until she turned him on . . .
Samantha Schultz has moved on with her life. Finishing her student teaching and living with her boyfriend, she's deluded herself into believing she's content. But there is one boy she never forgot-her first love - and she keeps the memory of him locked up tight. She will never allow any man to break her the way Christopher did.
When Christopher's sister and her family move into a new neighborhood, Christopher is completely unprepared to find Samantha living at the end of the street. Memories and unspent desires send them on a collision course of sex, lies and lust. But when guilt and fear send Samantha running, Christopher will have to fight for what has always been his.
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
"Promise me you'll never lie to me,"
This was a sexy adult contemporary romance, but boy did these guys make some mistakes!
Samantha obviously felt like Christopher had wronged her in this book, but it seemed clear that both Samantha and Christopher still cared about each other, even when they claimed not to. They really needed to work on their communication though.
The storyline in this was about Christopher and Samantha, their failed relationship, and them coming together again, and these guys really did make some mistakes! The pace in this was quite slow though, and there was some cheating which I know some people don’t like.
The ending to this was okay, but again, like in previous books, these couples don’t hang around on speeding their relationships forward.
